8051 microcontroller C/C++ compiler support for Eclipse [message #8848] Fri, 28 July 2006 23:45 Go to next message

Hi,

I am new to Eclipse and haven't had luck finding C/C++ compiler plug-in
support for 8051 embedded microcontrollers. The device I am using is a
Honeywell HT83C51 (or MCS-51 standard instruction set compatible) device.

I've seen vendors like Keil tools offer C lang support for the device, but
my employer has a strong affinity towards trying to use Eclipse environment
and hence need a compiler plug-in.

Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

Adam Jachniewicz

Hello Adam,

have you tried the CDT newsgroup yet (news:org.eclipse.tools.cdt)?

If you find an open source/gcc compatible compiler supporting the
8051, that would be supported by the CDT right out of the box.
I've googled for "8051 gnu compiler" and found a couple of links,
but I cannot judge their quality.

If you prefer a commercial compiler, adding support for that
compiler to the CDT might not be tremendously hard. I know that
Intel is shipping a CDT plugin for their compiler, and support
for IBM XLC compilers has been added to the CDT just recently.

By looking at what the developers have done for XLC, it might
be easy to add support for other compilers similarly.

Thanks,
Martin

Thanks Martin. Its appreciated. I co-worker also suggested a company called
H-tech software (htsoft.com) but haven't confirmed that. I will try posting
on the other group and look into those links as well.
